Medicine's Mysteries Part 1

Strictly this counts as a surgical mystery, but that ruined my alliteration...

All the time we're told about surgeons and varicose veins. The better a surgeon the more varicose veins he has, because he's spent longer on his/her feet in surgery.

Surely surgeons should wear support stockings? But they don't... why?!

Now that is a good question. Could it be vanity, and wanting to have the war wounds to show off?
